Zebra Mussel and Aquatic Nuisance Species compiles data on the ecology of aquatic nuisance species and offers the latest ideas and methods on their control and elimination. The sweeping coverage includes contributions from researchers, engineers, public officials, and interested citizens. Devided into four parts the book pays special attention to the incursion of nuisance species via the ballast water of ships. Part one offers a global perspective on the nature, transport, control, and regulation of numerous nonindigenous nuisance species. Part two describes their ecology, effects, and environmental impacts in various freshwater habitats. Part three conveys the results of research and some economic evaluation of nuisance species control methods. Part four addresses technology transfer, education, outreach, and related sociological issues. Zebra Mussels and Aquatic Nuisance Species is a thorough, well-referenced, and illustrated look at the growing problem of non-indigenous species pollution. It offers scientific data and analysis, and a perspective on the legal and international issues involved. The articles present repeated and compelling data that increases awareness and inspires action.
